Congrats at finding an alternative to public school for your daughter, alternative country even. Some of the best schools in the world are in the US but only for a minority. I went to 13 different schools in my first 13 years of school, small/large, private/public, alternative(liberal)/conservative, secular/religious, day/boarding - each had its strength and weakness. It would be impossible to combine into one perfect school. Public school was a mess though, more about survival.

Yes she is lucky, but it also took some planning and I think with the advances everyday concerning the Internet and Digital Education tools, the Information can more easily be provide to anyone with a network connection. I constantly emphazie to my students that it is about three thing:

1 - Getting the Information
2 - Validating the Information
3 - Integrating and using the information for the problem at hand.

This is where I think Wikipedia is of such importance, it provides a good starting point for research.
